Leave no high-ranking official unscathed appears to be Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s mission in a just-published Rolling Stone article. McChrystal, the top commander in Afghanistan, and his aides slagged off on the bosses in Washington and nearby Kabul. National Security Adviser Jim Jones is called a “clown” by one aide. Another aide joked that Vice President Biden’s nickname should be “Bite Me.” McChrystal complained to his staff that his first meeting with the president was little more than a “10-minute photo-op.” “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about him,” a McChrystal adviser told Rolling Stone. This isn’t the first time McChrystal’s friction with the administration has found its way into public view. In the fall, his call for an influx of troops was leaked to The Washington Post. The general was summoned to the White House and promptly fired.
